Shimizu et al. Efficacy of deep rTMS for neuropathic pain in the lower limb: a randomized, double-blind crossover trial of an H-coil and figure-8 coil

A recent study performed in Japan compared the safety and efficacy of a Brainsway deep TMS H-coil, a standard figure-8 TMS coil and a sham coil (placebo) for the treatment of 18 patients suffering from neuropathic pain. All patients received all three types of treatment in a crossover design. It was found that only the deep TMS H-coil induced significant pain improvements, while the results of the figure-8 were not significantly different than the sham. The treatment was well tolerated and no serious adverse events were reported.
